A Deep-Seated, Hard to Break Love and Bond with Food
The inability to stop craving food is in our heads.
There aren’t any motivational quotes or inspirational words of wisdom I can give you to stop you from craving the foods you’ve enjoyed all of your life. It’s all in your head. We’ve all associated certain foods with certain events in our lives and we simply have to practice self control to gradually break those bonds.
The only thing I can tell you is that you’re not alone and everyone fights the love for junk food.
I had/have a psychological problem going to a movie theater and watching a movie without getting popcorn and a soda. I feel compelled to get a combo every time. Three years ago, I loved going to the movies and buying a medium popcorn and a large coke for myself and guzzling it all down — usually after a dinner — and enjoying every second of the experience.
These days, sometimes I still do it, even though I hate every minute of it.
The first time I was able to go to the movies and skip the popcorn was when I went to see The King’s Speech. It was released in November of 2010, nearly two years after I started my transformation. And no, it wasn’t the first time I had gone to the movies since I started losing weight — it was the 5th. Nobody is above the psychological bond we all have with junk food. I’m just doing my best to make sure the most of the bonds I form these days are with low-calorie, waist-line friendly foods that won’t skill me.
There’s always room for junk food — but the square footage should be fairly small.
